The Spring Graduation Celebration in June 2020 welcomed the first 19 graduates of the Dene Teacher Education Program (DTEP) with a Bachelor of Education – Indigenous Education Degree. Most recently, two (2) more graduates were awarded their degrees during the Fall Graduation Celebration in October 2020.
Students of the program have a unique quality in which they can carry forward in their educational careers – the capacity to speak the Dene language, read in the Dene language, teach in the Dene language and have learned the traditional land-based knowledge to share with their students.
In mid-December 2020, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Government Relations highlighted the Dene Teacher Education Program (DTEP) and the graduates in their Partnership for Success Profile.
